Flood watch issued

That's where the most snow is on the ground, and also where the heaviest rain is expected to fall.

The Ohio River in Cincinnati rose up to 52 feet last night and may reach up to 55 feet by Wednesday morning.

"There may be a short window of freezing rain in the morning (Wednesday)", said Chris Roller, weather service meteorologist.

The state's western, central and northern regions are included in the threat area, according to the National Weather Service in North Little Rock.

The National Weather service will issue its next spring hydrologic outlook, or flood prediction, March 1.

Flash Flood Watch in effect for the NW half of the area through Wednesday night.

Temperatures in the 50s and low 60s this evening will go into a steepening decline overnight, ultimately settling into the middle and upper 30s by daybreak. The total rainfall through noon Wednesday could be over two inches. "If this potential increases, flood watches may be issued later in time". But the watch was dropped early Tuesday for Wood, Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca, and Hancock counties.

The potholes on numerous roads may also be filled with water, which also requires motorists to slow down in some areas.

Areas further south along the Fox River are also included in the flood warning.

If you live in an area that is prone to flooding, you should be taking protective action now to keep you and your family safe. More possible heavy rain will arrive Friday and Saturday.
